byrnes. >> steve: tony, what happened early in the race when there the big wreck broke loose? >> i got a big run on the 20. i went to the bottom. i thought i was cleared and the spotter did not clear me. i went on my own and i thought i had enough run to be clear of the third place guy. i'm pretty sure i clipped whoever was in third. so i, i made a move for the lead. and probably was anxious too early. but it was -- i was kind of stagnant where i was at and having fun moving forward and i felt racy. >> steve: thank you. >> chris: it was a split second decision by kevin harvick. kind of a double-block move to hold off tony stewart. and greg biffle. chevy edges ford in the "sprint unlimited." we'll have more from daytona in a moment.
